Chris2cv Posted November 8, 2021 Author Share Posted November 8, 2021 Very little to report recently. The Clio is still in daily use as I STILL haven't done anything about the moped. The replacement trim for the Clio (original lost in the flood) arrived while I was on holiday, a week earlier than the delivery date quoted. Hermes sent me a series of emails, which I initially ignored as they looked scammy. They then eventually sent me a photo of somebody's legs in a doorway! I know that couriers seem to do that now, but wouldn't showing a face, or some sort of clue as to where you've left it be more useful? Eventually tracked that down to my neighbour/receptionist Shirley. (Amazon tend to deliver while I'm at work, and for reasons best known to themselves normally tell me that they've left parcels at reception when I live in a house. Shirley is quite amused by this) Anyway, I finally had a few minutes spare to fit the trim yesterday. It took longer getting it out of the packet and cleaning the bumper than it did to fit! I did feel that it made the car look tatty having it missing and am happy to have it looking smart again. The car is not mint, but it's close, with just a couple of minor scratches and a little dent in the bonnet where a firework hit it. I know that it's worth very little, but it's been a good little car and has never really given much trouble. The n/s headlight and front fogs both seemed to have absorbed a bit of water from the flood, but I'm keeping an eye on them, at least it had just passed it's MOT. I haven't used the others for a while. Hopefully give the Stepway a run next week and the 2cv MOT is now on the 20th. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
